Another perk of being nominated, Everyone Wins gift bags
By Gabrielle Pantera
HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2017/3/7 – “At the end of the day, the movie industry is about allowing viewers to escape reality and enter a fantasy world,” says Distinctive Assets founder Lash Fary.“We hope we do that in some small way for these hard-working nominees. Help them relax, unwind, unplug and indulge after one of the most intensely hectic weeks of their lives.”
The Everyone Wins nominee gift bags have been independently produced by Distinctive Assets for 15 years, with this year’s bag valued at over $100,000. The gift bags are not affiliated with the Motion Picture Academy or the Oscars.
“Our goal is not to increase the value each year,” says Distinctive Assets founder Lash Fary. “A great gift has nothing to do with the price tag, and we are desperately trying to move the conversation away from that point . . . especially when outlets simply make up alternative values to suit a headline.”
Gifts go to nominees in the following categories: Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Director.
